Roger Stone says the pardoning of Dinesh D’Souza by President Donald Trump should send a powerful message to special counsel Robert Mueller and the former Trump associates he’s charged with wrongdoing.

"It has to be a signal to Mike Flynn and Paul Manafort and even Robert S. Mueller III: Indict people for crimes that don’t pertain to Russian collusion and this is what could happen," Stone, a longtime Trump associate and his onetime political strategist, told The Washington Post.

Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, faces two criminal cases brought by the Mueller probe which include charges of bank fraud and money laundering, all of which he has pleaded not guilty to. Flynn, Trump’s former national security advisor has pled guilty to "willfully and knowingly" making "false, fictitious and fraudulent statements" to the FBI and is cooperating with Mueller’s probe.

On Thursday, Trump revealed on Twitter that he was granting a full pardon to D’Souza, a conservative commentator and filmmaker sentenced in 2014 to five years of probation for federal campaign law violations.

Will be giving a Full Pardon to Dinesh D’Souza today. He was treated very unfairly by our government!

The commander in chief has since said he may commute the sentence of ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich, D-Ill., who is serving 14 years in prison on corruption convictions, and pardon homemaking diva Martha Stewart, convicted in 2004 of obstructing justice and lying to the government in a stock trading case.

Stone, who has come under scrutiny in Mueller’s ongoing investigation into Russia interference with the 2016 presidential election and whether the Trump campaign was involved, told The Post:

"The special counsel has awesome powers, as you know, but the president has even more awesome powers."
